State Secretary Miklós Panyi has underlined how Hungarians stand behind the Hungarian community in Transcarpathia, in western Ukraine.
Speaking in Sátoraljaújhely, in north-eastern Hungary, on Saturday, the state secretary welcomed families at a camp organized by the Rákóczi Association. Government bodies, municipalities, aid groups and churches in and outside Hungary have stood together to help Transcarpathian Hungarians, Panyi said. The government is providing educational support, wage subsidies, financing for churches and civil organizations, as well as subsidies for the humanitarian activities of aid groups, he noted. He pledged the government’s continued support for Transcarpathian Hungarians across the board. Fully 200 parents and children have arrived at the Sátoraljaújhely camp from western Ukraine to take a break from the everyday burdens of the war.
